ENVIROCRON® HTE (high-transfer-efficiency) powder coating, featuring a proprietary bisphenol A (BPA)-free polyester formulation that has a faster application build rate than traditional polyester coatings while providing more uniform coverage on complex parts and surfaces and reducing material waste.
Designed for appliance, architectural, wire goods and extrusion applications, the coating is engineered with an exclusive cross-link polymer that enables it to penetrate and apply evenly to metal parts and product assemblies with recessed cavities; odd shapes; and open, uneven or geometrically-complex surfaces such as refrigerator racks, patio tables, architectural components and other finished goods.
The coating can achieve first-pass transfer rates of 85% and better, which makes it ideal for spray-to-waste coatings applicators that want to reduce product loss.
The coating cures in 10 minutes at 350 °F, and it is available in a standard formulation to meet American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) 2603 specifications as well as in an ultra-durable version to achieve the AAMA 2604 standard. PPG manufactures the coating in a wide range of colors and gloss ranges.
